Okay so now, it is time to clean up our layer’s palette a little bit and make some other groups. And, I am just going to do this, the CS2 way, I showed you how to do it if your inversions prior to this. But in CS2, we no longer have that link column. So, if we want to temporarily add something to the list, we just hold down our shift key, if it is contiguous, if it is in a layer that is above or below it to add it to the temporary linking type thing.
And, what I am going to do is make a group that is just going to contain the make up things. Now, this over all darkened layer, we will consider that part of the make up layer.
So, I am going to Shift click on eye shadow, Shift click on lips. Now, pool ball is not part of that make up, so in order to select non-contiguous layers, instead of holding down the Shift key, if you are on a PC, you have to hold down the Control key and click, and if you are on a Mac, it would be the Command key, and remember this is CS2 and above only.
So, I will continue to highlight these things that are of make up type things, and once those are all highlighted, I will hold down the Shift key only and click on the group icon which is that folder icon at the bottom of the layer’s palette, and that will make a group of all those highlighted things which you have to link in previous versions. And now, I am going to name this “makeup”, so this is the makeup group. And, we will just leave the pool ball loose here.
But, I got a much more manageable layer’s palette at this point and that is what I like, so you do not get so confused. And, if you want to look inside and adjust any of those makeup layer, again just click on the triangle to expand and go down and target whatever you need to.
Before we start building up again, we want to collapse that palette here because we are going to create a new adjustment layer for hair. And, if we have this expanded like this and select a new adjustment layer, it is going to go inside of the currently expanded group. So, collapse that up but highlight it, so that our next layer comes in on top.
Okay, so again being consistent we are going to tweak the levels adjustment layer. We are going to go in here to levels, and I will move this over here. And, what I want to do again, you have to ask yourself a question, what do you want to do to the hair? Well, I want to put sort of a reddish maroon tint on the hair.
So, I am going to go directly into red channel here and since the name of the channel is red, that is the primary color. You moved the gamma slider to the left to give it a little bit more red. And, I also want to add a little maroonish flavor to it. So, I consider that kind of magenta, and the complementary color magenta is green, so I am able to control that in the green channel, and I will take the midpoint slider, and drag it to the right a little bit. And again, if these are too much, I can come back and reedit them after I create the mask.
So, in keeping with one of our procedures for working with our mask friends, we are going to invert the mask of this new levels adjustment layer, which we will rename “hair color”.
And so, Ctrl+I on a PC, Command I on a mackintosh, and that I want to make sure if have got my soft round airbrush which I do, and I am going to come in here, and start painting with white to reveal that hair color. And, just do it like this, and again, do not get excited and go, Oh my gosh! That is just too much, because the process is we have wonderful opacity controls and blending mode controls for these groups in the layer’s palette.
So, I am just going to run this over like this, and oh! I have to clean that up overspray on the hair down here, we will zoom out and minus. Let me add just a tiny bit of a Gaussian blur to that. My mouse is slipping here, Gaussian blur, I will zoom out in the Gaussian blur dialogue box just to look at the edges of the mask here going up to, le us see, about a 7.5, and I am going to click OK.
And now, what I am going to do is I am going to switch the blending mode of the hair color layer to soft light. And, that makes it a lot more subtle, and I am also going to lower the layer opacity maybe to about 80%, and then I am going to zoom in here and just look at these little areas.
And, notice when you bump in to that soft light blending mode is supposed to normal a lot of that overspray does not show up, that is because this underlined pixels at this particular point are pretty light. And, when they are super light and you go in to soft light mode, the interaction effect lightens it. So, it can save you a lot of work. But, I need to switch to black and again I am pressing X but my foreground colors in switching to black, and it is misbehaving. So, to fix a misbehaving brush, just click on the title bar, and then come back in your image window and the function should work.
Just go in here like that, and then you zoom out, see if there is any other spots that I may want to tag with this. Now, it looks pretty good, okay.
